The problem is with the shaft. Since it is a telescopic column, you can adjust the steering by moving it forward (away from you) or backward (towards yourself). When it is fully pulled, that is, away from the dashboard, it is likely to make more noise since the contact point of the intermediate shaft becomes smaller. I suspect you have it fully extended towards yourself.
Release the steering adjustment latch, push your steering forward fully ( away from yourself) and lock the latch again.
Drive with the steering in this position and tell me if you feel any difference.
